Appearance (5%): Poured hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered, some sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, trace lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Citrus with complementing slight dank. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Citrus and some complementing dank initially. Citrus peel continues into the aftertaste. For 7.2%, pretty smooth. Full-flavored. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied, good carbonation. Creamy and very juicy, slight dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. It gets hard these days to have a beer that really separates itself from the rest of the pack, but Imminent Domain tries to assert itself as that beer. It has pretty much everything I want in a New England-style beer: low bitterness, good citrus punch, and complementing dank. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.688/5
